Over at OH Tech, Ray Leto from TotalSim writes that by offering HPC software-as-a-service, the company can significantly reduce the cost of simulation, removing the hurdles that prohibit wider adoption of these proven methodologies in the broader engineering world.
We are developing web-based interfaces that will vastly simplify the process of model definition without impacting the fidelity and/or intent of the underlying simulation, allowing non-experts to drive the tool.
We’re using an open-source CFD solver, breaking away from commercially developed and licensed software. In this way, the cost element of conducting these simulations is dramatically reduced, whilst also allowing direct customization of the source-code to bring about improvements in fidelity and computational efficiency for a given class of flow regime.
